SPRINGFIELD, KY. — As part of AT&T’s continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in Kentucky, AT&T and representatives from the Springfield-Washington County Economic Development Authority today announced that the Springfield-Washington County Commerce Center has been designated AT&T Fiber Ready.
The AT&T Fiber Ready designation helps economic development leaders more effectively position their communities for site selection by emphasizing the availability of high-speed, fiber-based services.
In today’s world, connectivity is vital to new employers and businesses of every type.
“Springfield is open for business, and we want to ensure that message is heard loud and clear throughout the country,” said Rep Kim King. “This Fiber Ready designation helps our economic development leaders send that message as they work to attract businesses and jobs to Washington County.”
AT&T has been deploying high-speed, fiber-optic infrastructure across the Commonwealth for years, totaling more than 750,000 strand miles of fiber-optics to date, and the AT&T Fiber Ready designation is a tool for economic development leaders to highlight the assets available in their facilities.
“The AT&T Fiber Ready designation provides a clear stamp to tell the business community that we have the fiber-optic infrastructure in place to meet the needs of businesses, and as our elected officials continue to pursue efforts that make the Commonwealth even more attractive to companies, we will continue to work to bring high-quality jobs to the community,” said Daniel Carney, executive director of the Springfield-Washington County Economic Development Authority.
“For years, AT&T has invested in Kentucky to deliver high-speed Internet in urban and rural areas all across the Commonwealth using the latest wired and wireless technologies, and this announcement offers an opportunity to highlight AT&T’s fiber infrastructure in the Springfield-Washington County Commerce Center – infrastructure that is helping local businesses drive job creation,” said Hood Harris, president of AT&T Kentucky. “AT&T Kentucky’s employees are working hard every day to deploy our fiber-based network that delivers the high-speed Internet access that Kentuckians want and need, and the fiber optic connectivity that is available in the Springfield-Washington County Commerce Center is in place to meet the communications needs of businesses of all sizes.”
